TLC Book Tours Book Review: The Big Rewind

The Big Rewind coverAbout The Big Rewind

• Paperback: 256 pages
• Publisher: William Morrow Paperbacks (February 2, 2016)

Listening to someone else’s mix tapes is a huge breach of trust. But KitKat was dead . . . and curiosity got the better of me.

When a mix tape destined for her friend KitKat accidentally arrives in Jett Bennett’s mailbox, Jett doesn’t think twice about it—even in the age of iTunes and Spotify, the hipster residents of the Barter Street district of Brooklyn are in a constant competition to see who can be the most retro.

But when Jett finds KitKat dead on her own kitchen floor, she suspects the tape might be more than just a quirky collection of lovelorn ballads. And when KitKat’s boyfriend, Bronco, is arrested for her murder, Jett and her best friend, Sid, set out on an epic urban quest through strip joints and record stores, vegan bakeries and basement nightclubs, to discover who the real killer is. However, the further Jett digs into KitKat’s past, the more she discovers about her own left-behind love life—and the mysterious man whose song she still clings to. . . .

Review: If my bff read mysteries, I would so recommend this book to her. There's something about a book that involves mixtapes and murder that is part Nick Hornby and part quasi cozy mystery.

I have to say I was totally intrigued by the songs on the mixtape. I also love the fact that each chapter was a song title.

This book was totally different from what I am used to when it comes to mysteries. It was a different twist. It is definitely a book for someone that music minded. (Which I am).

This is the kind of book I wish I were a character in, just because of all the music references.

Rating: 4 flowers
